Tapped Out Part One: For the first three months of 2017, California was in a drought emergency and a flood emergency at the same time. That kind of contrast is what makes understanding the water crisis in California such a challenge. In the first part of a four-part special series, Tapped Out will take you back in time to learn what the Golden State looked like before settlement and then how early irrigation systems set the stage for the state’s first major water plan, the Central Valley Project. From over-pumping of groundwater to facing the environmental issues facing the agriculture industry in the San Joaquin Valley, discover how the past is impacting the future of farming in California.

Tapped Out Part Two: After farming got a huge boost in California with the Central Valley Project, a new, larger plan was hatched to deliver water to the population explosion in Southern California. Part Two of Tapped Out will examine the State Water Project, completed in the ‘70s, and how the environmental revolution, born at the same time, changed agriculture forever in the San Joaquin Valley. As politics and greed take center stage in California, new ways to farm and to survive evolve. But without building new dams and getting precious groundwater levels to back to normal, are we prepared for the next long periods of drought?

Tapped Out Part Three: As the fight over control of water in California intensifies, the environmentalist movement, powerful in Sacramento, continues to force more farms out of business with a flood of regulations impacting water delivery. But where will this eventually lead? What are the national security consequences if we become a nation that can’t grow its own food supply? Solutions that require both sides to come together may be the only way to prepare for California’s water-future.

Tapped Out Part Four: In our previous three episodes, more questions were raised than can be answered today. Ideas abound but what is the real path forward to sustainable solutions that address the current and future needs of water in the San Joaquin Valley? Join our expert panel for a lively discussion of imminent issues and hear firsthand the disparate ways a variety of entities believe THEY have the answers. Can a workable compromise be reached in time?
